Well Jerry answer me this-
Regardless of how much you love one vendor, would you pay the premium on a BBK if you found the exact same kit for $400 cheaper at another vendor?
Before I heard about the design change, a Stoptech BBK was a Stoptech BBK; there's no differentiation between what the vendors sell.
As good as a seller Zeckhausen is in customer satisfaction, I'm going to buy the kit at the best price available. Period.
Can't argue with your logic or the protection of your wallet. But I have never seen Dave be off on pricing by that magnitude. I can't remember the last time he was not the cheapest. But if he is not the cheapest, he is usually very close.
My point was that Dave should have been able to tell you why one kit was $400 different than the other if you were ordering from him. And if you are buying the product from a different vendor who is his competitor, why would you expect Dave to step in and give you information? I guess it is fair game to ask the board about its collective knowledge, but not to ask the guy who competes with your chosen vendor to give you information to confirm what his competitor has told you.
All IMHO of course.
